What in the hell is going on with Vince Vaughn? Perhaps he’s unsuccessfully trying to become the king of Christmas comedies, because this makes two yuletide stinkers in a row from the normally reliable comic actor. This time, he plays the boyfriend of Reese Witherspoon, and the two must endure four Christmas celebrations with various family members, because their flight to Fiji is cancelled. It’s one lame setup after another, with lousy supporting performances from the likes of Jon Voight and Robert Duvall. Are you hearing me? Lousy performances from Voight and Duvall. If that’s not a bad sign, what is? Vaughn gets a laugh here and there, but Witherspoon delivers a dreadful performance that makes her acting record post-Oscar (for Walk the Line) rather poor. Vaughn must avoid holiday films for the rest of his acting career. If I so much as see a Christmas tree in one of his future movies, I’ll throw up.
